The Best Genealogical Guide even for English readers!,
This review is from: A Genealogist's Guide to Discovering Your English Ancestors: How to Find and Record Your Unique Heritage (Paperback)
Although from the UK, I picked up this book on a recent visit to the US. From the start, it was obviously a much better book than anything available at home. I have now read it from cover to cover and would recommend it to any English reader. It answered questions I have not found answers to in the UK (such as how did the poor register births, marriages and deaths when they lived a long way from the Registrar's office). Designed to enable decendants in the US to trace their ancestors without travelling to the UK, it is ideal for an English reader who finds it difficult to travel around the country for their genealogical research. Ought to be available at amazon.co.uk!
